It was a production of a play based on the books of Philip Pullman called His Dark Materials and performed by the Dramatic Club’s Youth Section. It... More

We have been to the Little Theatre numerous times and always receive a lovely warm welcome. Their performances are always fantastic and you can see how much effort goes into each production. We like to arrive early and have a drink in the bar area, but we also like the fact that they have a large separate area where you... More

The theatre is the home of Southport Dramatic Club (SDC), an amateur group who are very good indeed. They put on regular productions of their own, as well as hiring out... More

I brought our Beaver Scouts to see the panto and they loved it. A fantastic performance from the whole cast who looked like they enjoyed performing the show as much as we enjoyed watching it. We had lots of giggly and happy Beavers which made for a great start to the Christmas celebrations. We will be back next year. Thank... More

My niece was in the performance so slightly biased. The panto was excellent though great costumes, music and production. The actors were talented and did a super job at entertaining all the family . Thank you

What a fantastic pantomime. We all laughed so much it was a tonic. The cast looked like they were enjoying it as much as we were. Funny and entertaining. Thank you so much to all the team for a wonderful memory for our daughter. Just what Christmas is all about, fantastic

If there's one pantomime to see in Southport I would recommend this one, great family fun, lots of good "bad" jokes, great audience participation, everyone especially the kids enjoying he's behind you and oh no he's not! Excellent cast with great singing and dancing, thoroughly enjoyable.
